now a major motion picture ~ colin herd

mike says in his clio (squarely
at me): stop it with this frillier than
thou attitude, & scatter-brained,
scatter-brained gets old.

the tops of lorries flutter
like my underwear on the line
and get wet in the drizzle
like my underwear on the line

i strain above the engine: when
i get another pet, i think i’ll call
her neil diamond. mike likes neil
diamond. we’ve been listening to
neil diamond since we left the gym.

Colin was born in Stirling in 1985 and now lives in Edinburgh. Poems and reviews have appeared or are forthcoming in journals and zines, including Gutter, 3:AM, Dogmatika, Velvet Mafia, Chroma, Blart and Shampoo. His first full-length collection, entitled ‘too ok’, is forthcoming from BlazeVOX Books in December 2010. He edits 'anything anymore anywhere', a poetry magazine.
